How Climate Change Might Save the World | Séminaire général avec Ulrich Beck

Avec Ulrich Beck

We are faced with questions too big to fail and too big to answer. Most discussions on climate change are blocked, they are caught by catastrophism circulating in the horizon of the problem: what is climate change bad for? From a sociological point of view, because climate change is a threat to humanity, we can and should turn the question upside down and ask: what is climate change good for? The amazing thing is, if you firmly believe that climate change is a fundamental threat to all of humanity, then it might bring a transformative, cosmopolitan turn into our contemporary life and the world might be changed to the better. This is what I call ‘emancipatory catastrophism’. The question then is: how might climate change save the world?

Le séminaire général accueille les titulaires, post-doctorants et membres associés du Collège d'études mondiales, ainsi que d'autres chercheurs et étudiants avancés.
